Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, September 25, 2016 at 6:32PM

It Has Begun...

The transition to more Fall-like temperatures is in the works, but it wasn't even across the board Sunday. A subtle front worked south from Virginia bisecting the foothills with a 10 degree temperature spread from north to south. At least it's a sign of things to come.

Tuesday, a stronger cold front makes a pass with scattered showers developing ahead of the front Monday afternoon continuing into the nighttime hours. We'll take the rain, but rainfall amounts aren't overly exciting. Temperatures fall step-wise a few degrees each day through Thursday... you will be reaching for a jacket a few mornings from now.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure centered over New England briefly wedges down the eastern slopes of the Appalachians Monday. Increased cloud cover will knock temps down a few more degrees. Meanwhile, a stronger cold front approaches from the west leading to scattered afternoon showers continuing into the nighttime hours. The front passes Tuesday though a lingering daytime shower or two remains possible.

Behind the front a persistent northwest flow ushers in considerably cooler air. Cool enough that we'll reverse the trend from above average warmth to well below seasonal temperatures by Thursday.

Side note- an upper level low that will help promote the cool turnaround may meander far enough south to bring more than just cooler days. Right now we have a dry forecast beyond Tuesday. However, if the low becomes displaced towards the southern Appalachians we'd have to introduce a few days of rain late in the week. We wouldn't complain about the rain, but it would require wholesale changes to the forecast...
